Delonte West, a starting guard for the Cleveland Cavaliers, was arrest on Thursday in Maryland. After cutting off a cop in traffic, West was pulled over for speeding and the officer found three loaded guns on him.
A handgun was found in his pant leg, a handgun was found on his waist and a shotgun was found on his back in a guitar case. The 26-year-old was arrested for speeding and on weapon charges. His weapon charges were for carrying concealed weapons and for transporting loaded guns.
Last year, West started 63 games for Cleveland. He averaged 11.7 points, 3.5 assists, 3.2 rebounds and 1.5 steals in 33.6 minutes per contest. The 26-year-old, at least before this arrest, had a good shot to win a starting gig again this season.
Danny Ferry, the general manager of the Cavaliers, released a statement regarding West’s arrest.
Said Ferry: “We have been in communication with Delonte and his family. We are gathering more information and will not have further comment until the appropriate time.”
